An Irish company has been contacted by a US company about a possible change to its US agent registration rules.
The company said that it would like to register its agents in the US as long as the US Government does not change its regulations on agents.
The Irish Government said that this was a matter for the US, but the US said that any such change must be made through an agreed and signed agreement.
Agents in Ireland can only register with a US office or company and can only act for the Irish government or the state of New York.
The rules are in place to prevent agents from working for countries that are at war with each other.
The Irish Government is now looking at how to make it easier for agents who are registered in the United States to act in the country of their choice, and if this is possible, to be able to act with a minimum of scrutiny.
It has asked the US State Department to examine the issue and to ensure that any proposed change to the US regulations is properly considered by the US government.
According to the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs, agents in Ireland must register with the Irish Embassy in Washington, DC, and must be registered with the US Treasury Department, the US Department of State, the United Nations and the United Kingdom.
Agents can only be registered if the US has a US embassy or consulate in the State Department.
They cannot act in another country.
Agents must provide a letter of reference and provide documentation to support the application.
Agents may also register for the agent registration scheme.
Agent registrations were introduced in 2003 as part of the International Registration and Certification of Agents (IRCA) scheme.
The scheme allows companies to register agents in other countries.
The IRCA scheme was introduced after a number of high-profile cases of foreign agents operating in the UK and the US.
Last year, a number was taken off the register, including one which involved a Chinese agent.
The State Department has previously said that the State of New Zealand will not recognise the IRCA registration, which is currently valid until 2021.
Ireland is also a member of the EU, but not of the Schengen Agreement, which allows member states to be bound by certain international rules.
